for ten years, we had what senator feinstein is suggesting, it was allowed to expire, the fbi, the justice department and others, the studies made no difference. if we're looking at things that are effective, let's talk about it, but first, let's talk about protecting our kids. >> you heard what david keen, who's the nra president had to say on cbs face the nation regarding gun laws, what do you think? >> well, with all due respect to the nra, and i believe in the second amendment in general, but i also believe that i won't pretend to be a gun rights lobbyist if they don't pretend to be school security experts. that way we can respect our field. one gun in the hands of a kid is one too many in a school. when we look at the firepower, i think we need to have some rational conversations on the gun issue and stop politicize. within 24 hours, we started circling the wagons on this issue. and yes, that needs to be a conversation, we also need to balance out that conversation, what are we going to do when kids come back to school in two weeks and how do we pull back all these other resources tha
guns there's more homicide. >> that's simply not true. our fbi data and our national government data show that the higher murder rates, the higher violent crime rates are in areas where gun ownership is discouraged and carrying is either illegal or discouraged. i don't know what they were looking at at harvard, but that is absolutely not what the data show. >> if you also look at the top ten states across the country and per capita gun ownership. five of those top ten states also have the highest gun deaths per capita. how do you explain that? >> they still have a low violent crime rate and a lower murder rate. so you're talking numbers versus rates, and i think that's probably where the disparity is coming in. >> last question for you here, larry. when we look at the problem ahead of us, several gun shows canceled in the wake of the newtown shooting, doesn't that go against the message that the nr ascent yesterday canceling the gun shows that canceling gun shows at least according to mr. lapierre's statements, need to be at schools and need to defend themselves. >> each gun show is
. and the agents on the scene are depicted as okay with that. in real life, when that happened a fbi agent who was on the scene had a fit, began yelling at the agents, threatened to have them arrested and said this isn't the way we do this or the way americans do this. so really dramatic confrontations about the moral issues that were going on there. >> is there anything that the senators in writing this, have they asked for anything in return? >> they have. they have asked that sony make it clear that it's fiction but what the senators really could do and the reason the movie is so powerful is so much is still classified so all we have is the movie. we have the movie giving us sort of a window on something we haven't seen and they could get more declassified. >> amy davidson, thanks so much. great to see you. >>> it's looking like christmas here at 30 rock. more about that after break. ] you know exactly what it takes to make them feel better. ♪ you make me happy [ female announcer ] that's why you choose children's tylenol. the same brand your mom trusted for you when you were young. ♪ h
and in 91% of the cases the fbi was powerless to stop them. likewise, the nra members feel that if you have a gun that's lost or stolen, you ought to report it within 48 hours. 600,000 guns were lost or stolen last year that were unreported. so it's things like that that we need to -- >> i'm sorry, congressman. i don't want to run out of time because it's an important conversation. are these the issues that you wish to deal with the legislation you're proposing now? >> yes. well, that's what would be included in the bill. and i know we would have the support of the vast majority of the american people and the majority of nra members. >> how do you know that? >> well, because of this poll that has -- that can gop pollster took and found that most nra members are not nearly as extreme as the nra leadership is on this. so i think there's a possibility of getting some common sense gun control measures passed. and you know, i know it doesn't look like this congress can do anything, but i think we need to try, and i think if we have the support of the nra members, we have an opportunity. you know

wayne lapierre, you're wrong. >> you've got 35 states that don't cooperate with the fbi on background checks. you've got states now that permit gun, conceal guns in elementary schools, you've got such a patchwork quilt of states permitting guns and access to guns in places where common sense says they shouldn't be but certainly on these magazines. >> why not a bill that says how about federal grants for armed security in schools, address mental health, i mean, it's a conversation about culture as well as some of these gun restrictions because it sounds likes that's not where the administration is headed. >> i don't know how they get it through the house. in 1994 in a democratic-controlled house 216-214 is how the assault weapon ban was in the house, that was democratic controlled house, 258 democrats were in that house of representatives. you you're not going to see anything. maybe the magazine clip. i do think the magazine clip could you see some sort of movement there but this goes back to why the president has to get a deal before thend end ofe year. if the entire year is lost goi
the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird holiday traditions. jimmy fallon had #latenig #latenighthashtags. he asked viewers to send in weird holiday traditions. after june wrapping a present, we ball up the paper and throw it at the ceiling fan and cheer
